Our All About India lesson plan introduces students to the country of India, which is often featured in news stories. Many students may have heard of the country, but are unaware of its history or characteristics. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to design and create a poster encouraging people to come to India; the poster must have text, a catchy and creative title, a slogan or similar saying usually found in advertisements. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to locate India on a map, list some characteristics and facts about the country, and explain some of its history.
